Abstract

Between November 25th and December 2nd 1999 the Archaeology Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out an archaeological evaluation at Watersmeet, Mill Common, Huntingdon (TL2398 7136). The results from the evaluation revealed significant late Iron Age/Roman and Medieval remains within the development area. The 1st century Iron Age or Roman remains may represent roadside activity alongside Ermine Street or represent riverside occupation which eventually culminated in the nearby villa site. The medieval remains consist of several occupation features, plus a re-working of the post-Conquest period, rather than being part of the Danish or Saxon burh. It may therefore represent a 'lost' western bailey of the Norman Castle.
